We've created a few (totally fake, sadly not-for-sale) examples to send your child back to school feeling confident about their identity as well as the integrity of that peanut butter and fluff sandwich that you packed with loving care, and with the intent of surviving an ATV crash into the side of a brick building.
The brilliance of Breaking Bad is that we can't stop watching Walt. Walter White is very smart, highly charismatic, identity challenged, sociopathically inclined, and amorphous. But -- is he alone in this breed?
Once he had Jesse in his clutches, Hank became Walter White.
My jaw dropped when I realized what Walt was doing.
"Breaking Bad" is all about lies people are willing to live with, and it's not in anyone's interest to ignore the many factors that feed the ugly backlashes to female characters.
The season six premier of Breaking Bad ended with an Albuquerque standoff between Walt and Hank, giving us a performance from Bryan Cranston and Dean Norris that TV dreams are made of.

They call it cooking meth, but really, it's a lot more like baking. Maybe that's why I look forward to the meth cook montages on Breaking Bad.Even the finished drug is pretty, big and opaque as blue raspberry rock candy.
Breaking Bad is ending, and there won't be anywhere to hide -- the Internet is going to blow up. You're going to freak out a little, but it's good to have millions of online presences by your side, suffering right there with you.
All that love and excitement, a killer script, and amazing performances make The Untitled Work of Paul Shepard a creative force to be reckoned with, and one you really need to experience for yourself.
Breaking Bad ends soon, to the dismay of millions, but word is that at least Saul the speed-talking lawyer is getting a spinoff. With that in mind, creator-extraordinaire Vince Gilligan, here are ideas for future series, inspired and derived from BB.
When a great show enters its home stretch, it's impossible not to be nervous about the ending, but "Breaking Bad" reminds me of "The Shield," in that it seems to work harder to satisfy and to earn every single moment and plot twist the closer it gets to the end.
Much has been written about the transformation of Emmy-award winning actor Bryan Cranston's tormented character Walter White from the hit show "Breaki...
